RUN, the Eisner Award-Winner for Best Graphic Memoir, is one of the most heralded books of the year including being named a:
New York Times Top 5 YA Books of the Year · Top 10 Great Graphic Novels for Teens (Young Adult Library Services Association) · Washington Post Best Books of the Year · Variety Best Books of the Year · School Library Journal Best Books of the Year · Kirkus Reviews Best Books of the Year · Amazon Best History Book of 2021 ⢠Top Ten Title of the Year (In the Margins Book Award) · In the Margins Book Award for Nonfiction winner · Top Ten Graphic Novels for Adults (American Library Association) · Best Books for Young Readers (U of Penn Graduate School of Education) · Books All Young Georgians Should Read (Georgia Center for the Book) 
First you march, then you run. From the #1 bestselling, awardâwinning team behind March comes the first book in their new, groundbreaking graphic novel series, Run: Book One.
âRun recounts the lost history of what too often follows dramatic changeâthe pushback of those who refuse it and the resistance of those who believe change has not gone far enough. John Lewisâs story has always been a complicated narrative of bravery, loss, and redemption, and Run gives vivid, energetic voice to a chapter of transformation in his young, already extraordinary life.â âStacey Abrams
âIn sharing my story, it is my hope that a new generation will be inspired by Run to actively participate in the democratic process and help build a more perfect Union here in America.â âCongressman John Lewis

The sequel to the #1 New York Times bestselling graphic novel series Marchâthe continuation of the life story of John Lewis and the struggles seen across the United States after the Selma voting rights campaign.
To John Lewis, the civil rights movement came to an end with the signing of the Voting Rights Act in 1965. But that was after more than five years as one of the preeminent figures of the movement, leading sitâin protests and fighting segregation on interstate busways as an original Freedom Rider. It was after becoming chairman of SNCC (the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee) and being the youngest speaker at the March on Washington. It was after helping organize the Mississippi Freedom Summer and the ensuing delegate challenge at the 1964 Democratic National Convention. And after coleading the march from Selma to Montgomery on what became known as âBloody Sunday.â All too often, the depiction of history ends with a great victory. But John Lewis knew that victories are just the beginning. In Run: Book One, John Lewis and longtime collaborator Andrew Aydin reteam with Nate Powellâthe awardâwinning illustrator of the March trilogyâand are joined by L. Furyâmaking an astonishing graphic novel debutâto tell this often overlooked chapter of civil rights history.
